Product description

Review

“The centuries-long torture of Haiti, and the courageous resistance of its people, is one of the most dramatic and compelling stories of modern history. It is vividly brought to life in this highly illuminating study, which also provides valuable lessons about western power and ideology.”

(Noam Chomsky Institute Professor and Professor of Linguistics (Emeritus), Massachusetts Institute of Technology)

“The UN occupation of Haiti promised to bring stability and democracy. Instead it has delivered cholera, rape and repression. Justin Podur expertly exposes the abuses that ‘the international community’ has inflicted on one of the world’s poorest countries-from the brutal imposition of structural adjustment and the driving out of a democratically elected president to the politicization of earthquake relief.”

(Greg Grandin, Professor of History, New York University)

“A systematic analysis. … Podur offers a timely overview of the whole period of post-Aristide Haiti, right up to the present day.”

(Peter Hallward, Professor of Modern European Philosophy at Kingston University and author of Damming the Flood: Haiti, Aristide, and the Politics of Containment)

“Podur’s book explains how a country that is nominally democratic suffers under the yoke of a ‘New Dictatorship’ in which international actors and their Haitian elite partners leave the majority of Haitians with little effective influence over their own economic and political affairs.”

(Brian Concannon, Director of the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti)
